Father’s Day is coming really soon and what better way to celebrate dad than giving him a handmade gift? In this post, I’ve rounded up 10 free crochet patterns that dad will love. There’s still time to work that crochet hook, so get to it!
X Border Hat
Granted, dad won’t need this hat for the summer, depending on what type of yarn you use, but come fall time, he’ll look smashing in this beanie type hat.
Man Cave Throw
If dad is cold all the time, why not whip him up one of these throws? He’ll look snuggly and comfy sitting on the couch underneath this.
Baseball Can Cozy
For the sports loving dad, this can cozy is a perfect accessory for watching the game. In addition to the baseball, there is also a football and a basketball cozy pattern.
Woven Look Glasses Case
If your dad wears glasses and is a hipster at heart, this glasses case will not only protect his spectacles but look cool doing it.

Phentex Crochet Loafers
Who doesn’t like a pair of loafers? Dad will feel pampered receiving these. And they will warm his feet too.
BB-8 Christmas Bauble
A Star Wars Christmas bauble might seem like a weird Father’s Day gift, but I think this could be hung anywhere, maybe even in his X-Wing, um, I mean his truck. Yeah, his pick-up truck or his corvette, or whatever vehicle your father uses.

Crocheted Bow Tie
A crocheted bow tie, you ask? Yes, I say. It is something unexpected and definitely useful if he has somewhere swanky to be in the near future.
Everyone needs a pair of fingerless gloves, even dad. His fingers might get cold if he wears these during the winter, but at least he’ll be able to answer your urgent text message (f he owns a smart phone, that is).
Mustache Slipper Socks
I really, really want to make my dad these slipper socks. He has a mustache, these have a mustache – it is a win-win for all!
Daddy’s Simply Easy Mittens
These mittens are sure to keep his hands warm and toasty when he’s shoveling the walk. Of course, it’s kind of mean to remind him of winter in June, but he’ll appreciate it when the time comes to wear them.
Paid Pattern: Wolf Cable Afghan
This afghan pattern isn’t free, but I think the patterns in this book are beautiful. If you really want to spoil your dad you should get started on one of these. You might not finish it in time for Father’s Day, but at least you’ll have it ready for Christmas. I plan on trying my hand at one of these for my dad in time for his 70th birthday in November. Fingers crossed I can get it done by then.
Do you celebrate Father’s Day? What do you get your dad? I’d love to know, so leave a comment!
